For all its limiting devotion to the board game that inspired it, Blood Bowl 2 is far more of a touchdown than a fumble.
Let's put it in football terms: PES = modern, continental manager. FIFA = Mike Bassett. Like Liverpool, FIFA has talent, but it could be a long road back to contention.
This year’s PES has improved its game in all the right areas of the pitch, resulting in a pulsating, best-in-class football sim – although there’s room for improvement presentation-wise.
The strongest episode of this patchy series to date. [Oct 2015, p.82]
What's here is good, but doesn't justify the price when you're not even getting an hour of gameplay. [Oct 2015, p.91]
Two above-average games receive a sadly below-average port. [Oct 2015, p.86]
A substantial chunk of adventure with plenty of variety in its gameplay...feels like a properly modern reimagining of the influential '80s series. [Oct 2015, p.80]
The premise could have been taken further. [Oct 2015, p.75]
Long-term fans might feel sad that Kojima doesn't go out in a hail of meta-bullets, but his restraint lets those magnificent ideas breathe, resulting in one of the finest stealth games ever made. [Oct 2015, p.89]
All Dontnod needs to do now is stick the landing. [Oct 2015, p.83]
